TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to A R Kinks, Royal Astronomical Society
Date18 April 1912
Description'Replying to yours of the 13th, no rule has been laid down about the language in which Addresses to be presented to the Society in July should be drawn up. I imagine that the majority of them will be in the language of the country presenting them, and I do not think there is any sort of obligation on English societies to put them into Latin.'
